June 23, 2014- A man died after a collision with a transit bus, in Atwater. The accident happened in Merced County, on Monday, at about 8:19 PM.
An Atwater officer tried to pull over a motorcyclist, who was spotted driving dangerously, near Juniper Avenue and Buhach Road. The 1987 Harley Davidson did not stop, but instead took off, traveling south on Buhach.

The police followed the motorcycle, when the bike, after only a minute of pursuit, hit a curb. The Harley swerved into the intersection of Clover Avenue, and Buhach Rd. The motorcycle then smashed into a Merced Transit Authority bus, that was turning left onto Buhach.
The motorcycle rider was fatally injured and pronounced dead at the scene of the collision.
The bus driver was alone in the bus, and he was not injured.
